Reader Recipe: Grilled Three Cheese Sandwich with Tomatoes

Grilled 3 Cheese and Tomato Sandwiches
One of my favorite things in the whole world is a great grilled cheese sandwich. I love the way the melted cheese oozes along the crispy bread. Apparently, I am not the only one. TeamSugar member BoHoBaby108 recently shared her recipe for Grilled Three Cheese and Tomato Sandwiches. These look so great to me; in fact, I think I just figured out what's for dinner tonight!

To get the recipe,

The other day my fiance and I decided to have traditional combination of soup and sandwiches for dinner. I was tired of the typical tomato soup and grilled cheese, so I grew it up a bit with my creation of the grilled three cheese and tomato sandwiches which I served with Campbell's Select Gold Label Creamy Tomato Parmesan Bisque.

Serves 4

8 pieces of whole wheat bread
4 slices provolone cheese
4 slices of Colby cheese
4 slices of muenster cheese
1 small sweet yellow onion, chopped
2 Tablespoons olive oil
1/8 cup Sherry
1 medium beefsteak tomato, thinly sliced
Italian seasoning
Softened butter


1. Heat olive oil and sherry in a medium sauce pan over med-high heat. Add chopped onions and caramelize about 10 min. Transfer to paper towel and cool.


2. Lightly butter one side of each bread slice. Sprinkle buttered side with Italian seasoning.

3. Prepare sandwiches - Place one slice of bread buttered side down on a plate and layer with 1 slice of Colby , a spoonful of caramelized onions, a slice of Muenster, two slices of tomato, and a slice of provolone. Place top slice of bread on with buttered slice up.

4. Heat a large skillet over medium heat. Spray with cooking spray and place two sandwiches at a time to grill. Grill each side until lightly browned and crisp about 3min.

Mmmm.. I make something similar when there's nothin I really want to cook or "nothing" to eat in the house. Just grab some sourdough bread, toast it, butter it, grab fresh tomatoes from the garden, slice em and cover them up with fresh marzarella. Stick em in the oven or radiate them and your done. Yum yum. :drool:

Megania - I've heard about the mayo thing too. It does sound gross but I guess it's worth a try. If it tastes bad then I can toss it out.

After reading this last night, I decided to make it today. But I didn't have 3 cheeses and we ran out of bread, so I just made a quesadilla. It was still good.

megania- my friend does that- uses mayo. she claims its perfect but it kinda grosses me out, although butter isn't much better, healthwise i guess.

megania- my grandma always made stellar grilled cheeses and her secret was mayo. just a little on the pan side of the bread makes it perfectly golden, the slightest bit salty and delicious. sadly, i can never make it as good as she used to. but nothing usually tastes as good as grandma's cooking haha.

I love grilled cheese sandwiches with tomatoes! I think I know what I'm going to have for lunch today. I had a friend who made grilled cheese sandwiches with mayonnaise. It always grossed me out. I never tried it though.

This looks delicious! I had never put tomatoes on my grilled cheese sandwich until I got to college and now it's a must have for my grilled cheese.

I think I make the perfect grilled cheese. I heat the pan, add butter till it melts and then put the bread in the pan and swirl it around to coat the bread. Place the cheese on top of each slice of bread and it'll begin to melt. Throw the sandwich together and be sure not to burn it. And NEVER mash it. That's my grilled cheese pet peeve...when it's smushed.
